Regina King to Play Shirley Chisolm in a Biopic?


It seems that actress Kerry Washington spilled the beans during an interview with Kam Williams a Baltimore News reporter, saying, “And I just heard that Regina King is doing Shirley Chisholm, perfect casting, which is another story that has to be told.”

If the rumor is true, Regina King is the ideal person to play Shirley Chisolm, who is the first Black woman to be elected to congress and later the first Black woman to run for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Though Regina has remained mum about the biopic, she did allude to wanting to play the role of Chisolm some years back. Lets keep our fingers crossed that this movie sees the light of day, because Lord knows we need more movies like this.
